Wow. I can't believe I haven't posted something on the blog for two years!

I had so much fun looking through the blog, I must say. I can't believe how fast the time goes and how much Leo and Marcy have grown. One of the last posts was about Leo beginning Kindergarten. Now, Marcy is in Kindergarten and Leo is in Second grade. Time certainly flies.

Where has the summer gone???? Here...

Family camping at Potato Creek!

Everyone must earn their keep while camping. :)

 Marcy's rock collection

Marcy had a great time collecting rocks and special things around our campground. She carried this around with her for two days. It was her special "shell". It was actually a bent plastic soda bottle cap. We didn't have the heart to tell her.

Hiking around Potato Creek State Park

The kids also took their first train ride to Chicago! We had a fantastic day at the Shedd Aquarium.

We love you, Chicago!

Awesome jellyfish!
Doesn't this make me look like a professional photographer?!

 Fun times at the Polar Play Zone

A certain little 3 year old was exhausted after a long day in Chicago

Leo played T-ball!

Marcy (in the middle) at her dance recital

Click on the blue below to see Marcy's dance recital.
She starts fourth from the left and it's pretty hilarious. :)

Little sweetie!

Marcy's first haircut

 Some fishing...

and some more fishing!

 Painted Rocks

Fun times at Chain-o-Lakes State Park

Seeing live music

Lots, lots and lots of swimming with friends at
Uncle Jimmy's pool!

 Finding worms!

Feeding chickens

We have had a wonderful, fun-filled summer! You'll forgive me for not posting on the blog, right?! As you can see, we've been quite busy. :)

Hope everyone is doing well!  

Know what's next???

 First day, 8/15/12.

Sending love,

Although there has not been much snow this year, the kids were able to build a couple snowmen at their daycare. This picture was submitted to the local paper. Leo must have been running around in the snow that day when they gathered for a pic. :)

Bike riding

Marcy got her first bike!

She really picked up bike riding quickly. She was so excited about her new princess bike. She just needs to learn to keep her eyes ahead of her, look where she is going and realize she can't blow her horn while driving!

We also got Leo a new bike this year. He picked out the "dino bike". That is what he has named his new treasure. He loves it! It is easier for him to ride this one because it is bigger than his bike from last year. 

 This is one happy boy!

The first of many bike rides
this spring and summer!

Hope you have a great week!

Pirate and Princess Party!

The Pirate and the Princess before the party
We had such a wonderful time at the kids' party. I wish I had more pictures during the party itself, but we were all busy having too much fun to take pictures!

Marcy that morning in front of her big sign. :)
Her ceiling fan decorated. She loved it!
 Yummy princess cupcakes!
And one for the princess herself. :)

All of the princesses got cute little goodies and dress up gear for the party. It was so cute!

 Of course we couldn't leave out the pirates!

 The kid's cousin Ella was 1/2 pirate and 1/2 princess. She called herself a "princerate". We love her!

 We put up a "3" with Marcy pictures and a "5" with Leo pictures. Jeremy says we should just leave it up for
my 35th birthday this weekend. :)

We had the most fun this birthday season! It's been a couple of weeks since the party and the kids are still talking about it!

Have a great week!

Jenny, Leo and Marcy
